On Tuesday (28 September) we welcomed a third Afghan refugee family to a new home in the borough.

Once again we have provided them with a range of support, including connecting them to local schools, health services and others to help them settle in their new surroundings. Meanwhile the children of the first family to move to H&F have started at their local primary school having received school uniforms and laptops.

Next week we look forward to the arrival of a fourth family and we are preparing a similar package of support for them.

We have also been helping families at a local temporary accommodation centre with a variety of healthcare, education and welfare needs.

We continue to urge residents and businesses interested in helping with the voluntary effort that is helping the refugees to contact West London Welcome, the local group which has been leading such work in recent weeks.
